Amazing Careers - Very disappointing!

Lincoln's life cannot be compared with that quite trivial of the ladies mentioned in the book. Einstein's life is not trivial, but in this book the publisher just copied the text of Meet Albert Einstein which I previously bought, Can the same text be used with no warning for two titles by the same publisher?
